FoldiMate: A $1000 personal laundry folding machine
If you are asking why we are still folding our laundry by hand in 2019, Foldimate can change that but for $1000.
A robotic laundry folder called FoldiMate is set to hit the market by the end of 2019.
The robotic folder folds your clothing into neat piles. It can take care of an average sized load of laundry (25 pieces) in about 5 minutes.
The machine can fold any type of shirt, pants, or blouse from toddler sizes to adult sizes XXL. In addition, it can fold towels and pillowcases.
As the laundry folds, it piles into a drawer in the machine that simply needs to be removed and put away.
To use the FoldiMate, you simply clip each item you wish to fold into special clips on the machine. After that, the machine takes care of the rest of your folding needs!
When the robotic folder is in operation, it makes little to no noise that is no louder that an standard clothes dryer.
The final cost of FoldiMate is not yet released; however, its founder stated that it will cost around $1000.
Is this a fair price to pay for the convenience of never folding laundry again? That’s for you to decided, but one thing is for certain – it would be incredible to never have to fold another shirt again…
